Dexter’s Real Estate Market
The 2021 Dexter real estate market continues to be a strong seller’s market, with low inventory levels, strong price appreciation, and many over list price sales occurring. These October 2021 stats are compared to the previous year’s October 2020 statistics, which means for the year over year comparisons, numbers of transactions, and days on market can be skewed because there was a hot moment where real estate was effectively brought to a standstill. (Thanks, Covid-19.)
Average Sales Price
The average sales price for a single family property (house or condo) sold in Dexter in the month of October 2021, was $503,239. Compared to October of 2020, this is up 11.05%. The median sales price also saw a pretty significant jump in October. Median sales price rose 12.83% to $449,900, when comparing October 2020 to October 2021.
Days on Market
Properties sold in October of 2021 were on market for an average of 46 days. This is down 16.85% from October 2020.
Properties Sold At or Above List Price
October of 2021 saw a 9.38% increase in the number of properties sold, compared to October of 2020, with a total of 35 properties receiving new owners.
A newly tracked statistic for the Studio is the percentage of properties each month that sell at or above list price. This metric is another way to gauge the supply/demand inequity in the Dexter market. In October of 2021, 51.43% of the properties sold at or above list price.
When a little over half of all home sales are at or above list price, you can be sure that there is fierce competition among buyers for the limited stock of inventory that is coming to market. 18 of the 35 properties sold at or above list price this month.
